Design & Technology at Scotts Primary

Intent: At Scotts Primary School, we intend to build a Design Technology curriculum which is inspiring, rigorous, and practical. We want our children to use creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs. Throughout the DT curriculum, children should be inspired by engineers, designers, chefs and architects to give them the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences they need to be successful in later life. For each project, we follow a design, make and evaluate structure applying technical knowledge throughout. We intend for all children to acquire appropriate subject knowledge including creating a range of structures, mechanisms, textiles, electrical systems and food products with a real life purpose.
